This framed message was hanging in the University of Maryland Medical Center where my daughter Jamie had her kidney transplant on July 20, 2006. Scott , a very generous young man donated a kidney to save her life. Our family did not know Scott and he did not know us. He heard Jamie's story in an appeal for a donor at the Southlake Church he attended. The framed message was a very powerful message to me everytime I used the elevator at the hospital.
Below is information about PKD. Please join my team and help find a cure.
Polycystic kidney disease — one of the most common, life-threatening genetic diseases — strikes both adults and children. It often leads to the need for dialysis and a kidney transplant. It affects thousands in America and millions worldwide, who are in urgent need of treatments and a cure.
The Walk for PKD is the PKD Foundation's largest annual fundraising event. Funds raised from Walks across the country make up one third of our annual budget.
The more money our walkers raise, the more we can do in the fight to end PKD!
You can help by joining the Walk as a participant, volunteer or donor.
Together, we can walk boldly toward a future where no one suffers the full effects of PKD.
